I can hear the whisper of the wind as it whipped by me
It felt like an angel’s kiss, wishing me good luck today
I can hear it whistle as it passed by a sturdy tree
Reminding me to be as strong as I faced each new day.
I can hear the birds singing as it hopped from tree to tree
They sing songs of lullabies and of endless love so true
They sing songs of hope for a desolate person like me
These songs somewhat took me out of the depths of feeling blue.
I can finally hear the peaceful beating of my heart
Til when will I enjoy this calmness is yet to be seen
I pray that something good in my life will finally start
That will take away or, at least, ease my loads of burden.
I’ve been to limbo, all the way and back
Shouldn’t I feel alright and without lack?
But why do I feel I’m still without luck,
Still tied up and bound, with a key and lock?
Life is like a book,
At the turn of pages
A chapter is unfolded.
Life is like a battle
You must give your everything
In order to win the big fight.
Life is like a journey
With more steps you make
The end comes near.
Today marks a historical day
That we’ll never forget any way
Because it has become part of past
From which learning lessons is a must.
Today, in commemoration
Of history of our nation,
A Day of Protest was declared
That all grievances may be aired.
If only my own cries can be heard
If making protests won’t be so weird
Is there really someone who cares
For the people who live like paupers?
Is it merely coincidence or is it my fate
That I have been struggling very hard as of late?
But I do not think I am suffering alone
From such a harsh life that I seemed to have been born.
All around me, people sigh and can’t help but groan
At how diff’cult life was for everyone, they moan
Listening to them complain and talk about it
Somewhat pacifies me and comforts me a bit
For then I felt God has not forsaken me yet
And the thought bolstered my once discouraged spirit.
I am lost in the wilderness
Shouting for help without success
I trod along with my head bowed
From much uncertainty, I’m cowed.
Day in, day out, it’s all the same
I look around, no one came
Will all my days remain like this?
Will someone out there help me please?
As suddenly as it began, it stopped
Without any warning, it just attacked
A murmur, a wee tremor, a flutter
My heart will tremble, what’s this, I wonder?
